Casa Cor Rio de Janeiro is a prestigious national interior design event that takes place every year and Brazilian architect Gisele Taranto designed this cozy master suite for this year’s event.

Each architect is given a different section of an unused apartment to renovate and Taranto was given the master suite. The suite was created with a couple in mind that was interested in intimacy and privacy. In place of a TV, the bedroom faces the terrace with the only separation being floor-to-ceiling glass doors that frame the view.

The room is flooded with light so the walls and ceilings were covered with a gray stucco and the floors with recycled wooden floors from wood that is used to produce cachaça barrels.

Colorful artwork and objects are thoughtfully arranged throughout the suite making the space super inviting.

The writing desk is a design by Emanuel Gallina for Poliform and the scale works in the corner nook.

The master bathroom is flooded with natural light thanks to a skylight just above the shower.
